Overview


From his terrace, Samuel looks over Madrid's daily bustle. In the wee hours of the morning someone calls to tell him Clara has died and hangs up. The strange thing is that he does not recall ever knowing anyone by that name. Driven by boredom and a dose of curiosity, Samuel decides to go to her funeral. When he discovers he's been mistaken for the dead woman's secret lover, Samuel becomes fascinated with the idea of impersonating this man and invents an elaborate life story, which he shares with Carina, Clara’s sister. As Samuel becomes more attached to the memory of Clara and more attracted to Carina, the game he’s created spins out of his control. Will the love he’s crafted save him or will it end up burying him? La invención del amor combines classic thriller elements with the immediacy of journalism. Narrated in first person, the inquisitive and ironic voice of its lead character slowly reveals the deceptions of love and its fundamental importance.

    Trata de la manera de reinventar la relación con los demás, nuestras relaciones amorosas... es una invitacion a repensar el concepto amor. Es bastante más real a las típicas novelas de amor, digamos que habla del amor en la actualidad, el amor de hoy.
